I was surprised by this report to find that we’re still killing Al Qaeda second-in-commands. That’s seems so 2007. I thought Obama had taken it up a notch when he killed bin Laden and from now on we’d be going after the top man.
I didn’t know who that guy was exactly. But I assumed one of those Number Two men that were running around everywhere would step up after bin Laden was dead and become the new Number One. And then we’d kill him. It would be a win for everyone, even the guy we killed. Because he would have gone out on top rather than just being killed as another second-in-command.
